    I have a 2015 VF SS-V Redline sportwagon with the standard 19" wheels as pictured:
    [​IMG]

    I want to get new wheels but am confused about the sizing. Are these standard rims 19x8.5 on the front and 19x9.5 on the rear? or 19x8.5 all round?

    I have been told it's illegal to run 9.5 on the back as you need to stagger them?

    I want to fit 19x8.5 all round but not sure if that will work?

    Any help appreciated.

    Cheers.

    Correct they are staggered stock rims. Same as most GENF HSV being 8.5inch fronts and 9.5inch rears.

    It is not illegal as that is what came as standard. Legally I think it is Ok to run any width, diameter, offset that was an option at manufacture.

    Can anyone comment on if with a stock SS or sv6 were staggered HF20 an option?

    HF20s are not staggered...
    They are 8.5" wide front and rear

    In your case 8.5" all around is perfectly fine as it was an option from Holden

    Indeed, not all HF20 fitments are staggered - but some were.
    You could get a set of 4 at the same 8.5” width all-round, and you could also get a set at 8.5” front & 9.5” rear.
    If you chose the factory-fitted HF20 option for a 2016 or 2017 Redline, those are staggered.

    But yes, in NSW you can go up to 1” wider than the widest factory-fitted wheels to your model of car. As long as they don’t rub or extend past the wheel-arch, of course. Fortunately for us, the HSV cars are considered “the same”, so you can go 1” wider than the widest that HSV fitted (QLD is the same these days, I thought Victoria was the same but not entirely sure).

    I think your that your rears fitted currently are 19x9. HSV went to 9.5.
    Edit - brain glitch 19x9

    OP has SSVR 19 stock staggered.

    Hf20 can either get staggered or not in gloss black or not staggered in any other finish

    Holden Factory VF Redline 19" staggered rims are 8.5" wide on the front and 9" wide on the rears.

    HSV use 9.5" wide rims on the rears.

    So I'm running 8.5 on the front and 9 on the back?

    Cheers for all the responses so far - much appreciated.

    Okay thanks for that - 8.5 on the front and 9 on the rear. Got it!

    I'm looking at a set of 19" that are 8.5 all round and with 245 35r 19 tyres.

    Will that set up work okay? or will the rear wheels be well inside the guard because of the smaller width?

    Cheers again.

    where they sit in relation to the guard has more to do with offset than the width

    Yeah and generally stock offsets will keep it sitting similarly under the guards ie push it further inwards

    Ah okay I see - does anyone know what the offsets are on these stock VF SS-V 19" wheels?

    Cheers for all the help - as you can see I have no idea.

    The stock 19x8.5 rims come from Holden with 245/40R19 as the OEM tire

    The 19x9 inch rim is fitted with a 275/35R19

    Would you get oversteer if you don't have the wider tyres at the rear? The Redline has a very thick rear stabiliser bar.
